Replace scratched Fusion lenses and protect them

Hi,

unfortunately both lenses of my GoPro Fusion are scratched after only a short time. This is especially noticeable in direct light. Is there a possibility to change the lenses? Is there also a way to protect the lenses? For the GoPro Max there seems to be such a protection as standard, so it can also be used as a Hero camera. The lenses seem to me to be quite susceptible to damage.

Thank you and best regards
Bastian

Re: Replace scratched Fusion lenses and protect them

The GoPro Fusion lenses are not replaceable.  You should always carry the camera in it's protective case when not in use.  Make sure that when cleaning the lenses you are using a soft clean microfiber cloth, do not use tissue, papertowel or your shirt to clean the lenses as this can lead to scratches.  You can try bringing your camera to a lense crafters to see if they can butt out the scratches but they may not be able to do this or it could affect picture quality depending on the severity of the scratches.
